Michael Rudio: Suitability Complaint Against Ex-LPL Advisor
A recent investor complaint against Atlanta financial advisor Michael Rudio (CRD# 6322313) alleges that his advice resulted in losses. Financial Industry Regulatory Authority records show that he is registered as a broker with Purshe Kaplan Sterling Investments and an investment advisor with Phase Line Capital.
Mr. Rudio’s BrokerCheck report discloses one investor complaint. Filed in December 2023, it alleges that as a representative of LPL Financial, he recommended unsuitable structured product investments between December 2020 and November 2021. The pending complaint alleges unspecified damages of at least $5,000.
Phase Line Capital’s website describes its philosophy of putting the client’s benefits above all else. “It is core to our philosophy that we must know our clients before we can advise them in a holistic manner,” it states. “We are here to listen first, provide sound financial advice, and anticipate your next moves.” Elsewhere, the website notes that its services include portfolio management, financial planning, and annuity and insurance assessment. “We provide disciplined and hands-on planning, investing strategies, and straightforward perspectives tailored to your circumstances,” it explains. “Dedicated and personalized financial planning, we believe, is worth revisiting on a consistent basis since nothing in life is static.”
Other current or former Purshe Kaplan Sterling advisors who have received investor complaints include Bill Horak, Milind Dalal, and Nick Hamilton. Other current or former LPL Financial advisors to receive investor complaints include John Demertzis, Doug Nelson, Randy Redd, Joey Hobbs, and Ian Geeves.

His past registrations include LPL Financial (Atlanta, Georgia; 2017-2021) and Edward Jones (Sandy Springs, Georgia; 2014-2017).
